Penned by the successful author of Kimi ga Nozumu Eien (well-known as Rumbling Hearts or “Kiminozo”, Koki Yoshimune, the Muv-Luv series started as a high school romance Visual Novel game in 2003 but quickly evolved into an epic science fiction based saga featuring an alternate world, giant aliens, mecha robots, and a complex cast of characters.
Selling more than half a million units since release in Japan alone, The Muv-Luv series has successfully made the transition to anime and manga, even spawning the “Moe Military” trend which is still raging in Japan. With over 3 million individual figurines, robot hobby models, and anime/manga sold; Muv-Luv is a force to be reckoned with and has influenced a huge number of individuals all over the world including prominent artists and creators!
This Kickstarter will focus on the localization and PC/Steam release of the first two titles in the series: Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative.
The first game contains parts one and two of the trilogy: Muv-Luv【Extra】 and Muv-Luv【Unlimited】.
Shirogane Takeru was living a peaceful life as a 3rd year high school student with his childhood friend Kagami Sumika. However, one morning Takeru awakens to see a mysterious girl named Mitsurugi Meiya sleeping in his bed.
Thus begins the start of a high school love comedy where Takeru will have to choose between his childhood friend and the girl insisting they are bonded by fate.
Note: Despite the "Extra" in the title, this is the start of the trilogy. Read it first!
Shirogane Takeru finds himself stuck in a parallel world where mankind is on the brink of extinction after battling against alien invaders known as the BETA for the last 20 years.
Takeru soon finds himself enrolled into the United Nations 11th Force to fight these aliens. In this strange world he finds parallel versions of all of his high school friends, with one exception: Kagami Sumika, who does not seem to exist.
Soon he will have to fight to save mankind and protect the girl he comes to love over the course of the story.
Muv-Luv Alternative (2006)
The second Muv-Luv game is a direct sequel to Muv-Luv Unlimited and the conclusion to the Muv-Luv trilogy. One of the most highly acclaimed Visual Novels of all time, Muv-Luv Alternative is the #1-ranked Visual Novel on VNDB.
Three years after witnessing the tragic exodus of mankind, Takeru wakes up believing that everything that had happened was just a dream.
The brief hope that he has at last come back to his world is dashed away as soon as he discovers that he is once more trapped in the parallel world of Unlimited.
Restarting on that fateful day he first came here, will Takeru manage to use his knowledge of previous events to change mankind’s tragic future?
Considered one of the best visual novels ever, this is one of the last visual novels to get localized and released in the West.
